Yikes. Y’all stay safe
Supposed to be Columbus on highway 30 maybe?
Tornado just hit Evansville, Indiana?
Looks bad todd
All these towns have rivers or creeks that border them where flood concerns are really uncommon. They're totally unprepared for things like this.
How’s your area? You’re more on the East part of the state aren’t you?
I'm just fine. I have a bunch of family in that flash flood warning from the ice jam route, though. Not great.
Cornfed Buffalo too quick fam
I got a video from a relative yesterday where their pasture looked like a literal river. It's normally dry and they grow alfalfa and graze cattle in there.
Supposed to head to Lyons tomorrow after work for a birthday party. We normally go through Wahoo, Fremont, and Oakland. Not looking like that will be possible.
Hope everyone stays safe, this shit is nuts. I’ve got a lot of family in Nebraska too, everyone seems fine for now.
Fuuuuuckkkkk. The Platte is so big there. Could be way more destructive than those little creek overflows.
It just feels like tornado weather. Gonna be tense all day.
Going to be a disaster.
MIL just texted us that the flooding from Scribner/Snyder has made it all the way to Logan View and HWY 77 is closed.
For people unfamiliar the Platte is where almost all the other major tributaries in the state dump together before they go into the Missouri river 30ish miles downstream from that video.
North Bend was evacuated now as well.
My parents were just evacuated at 4:30 this morning in Platte County, just southwest of Columbus. They live on a lake development. The development is built up pretty significantly so that if it does flood, water will spill around it into pastureland. However, once the pastureland fills up...
This picture is looking to the west and was about 2-3 hours ago. Typically that’s open pastureland.
Well that’s terrifying.
Shit is wild today.
Saying it's no longer available
Reminds me of what happened to Columbia sc a couple years ago during their disaster, but on a broader scale. Just terrible.
Is that Clear Lake?
No. Also, the water in that picture is typically farmland.
More pics from Nebraska please. Didn't really venture far away from Omaha/Lincoln (aka I don't know where any of the cities named are located), but my wife is from Columbus.
Apparently they are anticipating 4-5 foot river surges in Fremont so they’re also evacuating.
Columbus is under water.
This is by Yutan. Ice blocks pushed up from the Platte.
Have some friends with houses on Woodcliff up there, they are pretty scared of what could happen
Apparently Winslow is in bad shape too.
East side of Arlington.
Haworth Park in Bellevue.
Ashland about to be gone too.
This is my hometown. It borders 2 creeks that are essentially 10-15 feet wide at the wide spots (literally a creek, not even close to approaching a small river). This drains into normal rivers, those normal rivers drain into the Platte River (a big one) that drains into the Missouri River.
Central AL getting hit at the moment. Two likely tornadoes in the past hour
Confirmed tornado on the ground near Oneonta with damage reported
Pic from a buddy in Scribner.
